Being tech-savvy does help kids. They're more updated on how to do things and how to go about it.

I really believe so. They are smarter because they are being aided by technology to learn more.

I don't think so. They are unable to distinguish facts from lies without the parent's help. There are so many information on the internet.

I have a nephew and a niece. They are both smart and they love watching TV and videos on YouTube. They learned to count, identify colors and shapes by only watching. Internet is really a big help even in educating our children.

I don't think so. It's all about how the parents teach their kids. You can't just rely on technology.

Don't mistake with unlimited knowledge with being smarter. Kids do not take advantage of technology. They use it for chatting and watching silly videos instead of using it for the wealth of knowledge it possesses.

Could be. They can learn a lot just by surfing the net.
